Colour image2000 The name Asda became recognised as a household name in Britain from 1965. It was a melting pot of several different companies, some developing over many years in the Leeds area. With the development of milk pasteurisation farmers formed co-ops to build processing units. Hindell's Dairy Farmers Ltd, was founded by Arthur Stockdale, a subsidiary, Craven Dairies Ltd, supplied milk to Leeds. Stockdale went onto form a partnership with Fred Zeigler, opening a pork products business at 118 Kirkgate. This was the basis of Farm Stores. The business expanded taking in other companies including Provincial Dairies of Leeds and Harrogate. At this stage the name changed to Associated Dairies Ltd. In the early 1960s brothers Peter and Fred Asquith has founded a supermarket in Castleford using innovative marketing strategies. The two companies were merged in May 1965 and Asda Stores Ltd was formed with Peter and Fred Asquith as joint managing directors. More recently it became part of the Wallmart group. In this image the purpose built Killingbeck branch of Asda stands in the background, with the busy car park in the foreground an indication of its success.
